Launched in 2011 and is the nation’s leading parking service, SpotHero is a new original app that provides accessible and low-cost parking for event attendees. By downloading, you can reserve parking in advance to guarantee a spot to park near your desired destination. This new way of parking saves event attendees the hassle of finding parking when they get there.
With their custom parking landing page, SpotHero allows attendees to view and reserve a spot right from their mobile device. When choosing a parking site nearest to your venue, the platform automatically updates the lots so you always have the most recent information. For now, parking locations are only extended to garages, lots, and venues in 21 major cities such as Minneapolis, Chicago, Milwaukee, etc. Once the platform is up to date with the latest parking availability, you choose a garage, lot, or venue closest to your preferred destination, fill in the time slots you will need to keep your vehicle there, and then pay directly through the app. From there, you will receive an emailed receipt which is essentially your “parking pass” that guarantees you a spot for when you arrive.
“SpotHero for Events ensures that event organizers can offer stress-free parking to attendees, and attendees can relax knowing they have spot waiting for them, booked in advance right from their phone.” said CEO and co-founder Mark Lawrence.
Even more, SpotHero has partnered with CureSearch for Children’s Cancer, NYC Triathlon, Chicago’s Christkindlmarket, and many other fundraisers, marathons, cultural gatherings, music festivals, and charity events across the country to provide them parking. This effective service has parked over 3 million cars and raised $27 million in VC funding. SpotHero continues to grow and provide event attendees with services that make life more simple.
